News, Updates, & Warnings:
Open to hunters during hunting seasons.
From Van Buren, take Hwy 60 west to the trailhead which is just past the Mark Twain sign on the left. The exit trailhead is located by traveling south of Freemont on Hwy J to Forest Road 3152. Turn west on Forest Road 3152 and drive to the lookout tower.
Miles of Trails:
This trail has steep, rocky hills with high drop-offs and streams you do not want to cross during high water. Since this portion of the trail is seldom used, be prepared to take care of yourself and be aware of the time and daylight. In the summer time, be on the lookout for rattlesnakes, copperheads, yellow jackets, ticks and poison ivy. The trail can get quite overgrown later in the season.
Other Trail Users:
Hikers, mountain bike riders, and hunters.
